Call for Presentations
Deadline: August 17, 2020

The Annual Symposium on Health Care Services in New York: Research and Practice, inaugurated in 1990, is held each year to foster collaboration on and understanding of current health care issues and research in New York, build bridges among health services researchers and practitioners, and showcase the New York health services research community. The presentations chosen through this call will act as a virtual replacement for the poster session at the Symposium. The goal is to provide an opportunity for health services researchers and practitioners to interact and share ideas. 

Submit a Presentation Abstract for the Symposium

Applicants are invited to submit abstracts of one or more studies or projects that have progressed to the conclusion/evaluation phase by the time of abstract submission. Preliminary or final results must be included in the abstract (COVID-19 related presentations will be considered regardless of current stage of research findings). Projects may consist of original research, syntheses of research, policy analyses, or model programs with evaluations, applicable universally or to specific populations. Please note that while the Selection Committee welcomes abstracts that focus on a specific clinical condition (e.g., congestive heart failure), the project’s approach, findings, and implications should be sufficiently accessible to non-specialists to be considered for presentation.

Suggested Presentation Topics

Applicants will be notified about acceptance in September 2020. Specification for presentations (slide requirements and restrictions) will be provided to presenters upon selection. Presenters are expected to provide slides in advance and to be available to join the web-based Symposium, present their research virtually, and respond to attendee questions.

Event details for the 31st Annual Symposium on Health Care Services in New York: Research and Practice will be announced soon.
